Fabric Flowers

My women's bible study group came over on Monday evening for a Tea and Posies party.



We made fabric flower corsages while sipping tea and eating these cute little pumpkin cupcakes that Janet baked. I had tables set up, all my "stuff" pulled out, and candles. We ate, laughed, and created.



This project is so satisfying. Everyone had a successful finished pin... no mistakes. And I am happy to say no one burned my house down either. After having 5 kids and 4 pets, I usually stay far away from candles!
If you want to host your own Tea and Posies party. Here are some great directions that Calamity Kim wrote out. If you go to her blog you can see more of her great work too!

Hi Teresa and Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving day! What an awesome idea for your group. The flowers turned out beautiful. I admired these when Kim first posted on them and promptly forgot them:( I have been in a fabric flower frenzy and want to try these. My bible study group consists of my youngest daughter and myself so that may be do-able for me lol. Thanks for sharing, Mollye

Hi! I found your blog, and love your flowers. have you found a good place to find cute buttons and materials? I am constantly searching trying to find a good supply place, I'm doing flowers, but a different style. Good luck in your endeavors, and I would love any ideas. Thanks,
